At the meeting, you will have an opportunity to contribute your ideas for making the Town more resilient to natural hazards such as flooding, snowstorms, high winds, and extreme temperatures. Join the meeting to answer questions regarding what natural hazards are most concerning, what areas of Town are most vulnerable, and what can the Town do to protect these areas from these risks?
This plan is being developed by the Office of Emergency Management and members of Brookline’s Emergency Management Team. Jamie Caplan Consulting LLC, a Northampton, MA based firm, is leading this effort on behalf of the Town and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approval, and Town adoption, of the Hazard Mitigation Plan allows the Town to apply for pre- and post-disaster hazard mitigation grant funds.
Brookline developed a Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) plan in 2017 that also identified possible actions to mitigate risks to natural hazards and climate change. The 2023 Brookline Hazard Mitigation Plan will include all of those identified actions still relevant today.
